The Chinese mini PC maker is breaking away from its usual square-shaped builds with modest specs and is presenting its first all-AMD gaming-oriented system featuring an open air case packing a Ryzen 5 5600X processor coupled with 32 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and 1 TB M.2 SSD storage, plus a Radeon RX 6700 XT GPU.

Minisforum is introducing yet another AMD-based mini PC model, but this one is unlike any of the modestly-specced systems we have come to expect from the Chinese OEM. As suggested by its GameMini moniker, the new all-AMD system is aimed at gamers, and is in fact  Minisforum’s first true gaming mini PC model that also features an open case design.

The GameMini system is quite a bit longer than any previous Minisforum square-shaped model. This is because the open air case is fitted with desktop-grade components, rather than ULV ones that usually get integrated in compact laptops. Overall, the GameMini looks like a solid mid-range build. It includes a Gigabyte Aorus B550I Pro AX mini-ITX motherboard along with an AMD Ryzen 5 5600X hexa-core CPU able to boost to 4.6 GHz (with a non-stock cooler) plus a newly released AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT that is riser-mounted on the opposite side of the motherboard. The system also features 32 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM from HyperX, 1 TB Kingston KC2500 M.2 SSD storage and a SilverStone SX650-G PSU that can support more powerful CPU and GPU upgrades.

The Aorus motherboard also comes with PCIe 4.0 support, Wi-Fi 6.0 + BT 5.0 + 2.5 GbE NIC, and port selection including 4x USB-A 3.2 Gen 1, 1x USB-A 3.2 Gen 2, 2x USB 2.0, 1x USB-C 3.2 Gen 2, dual HDMI 2.1 + 1x DP 1.4 video outputs and 3x audio jacks connected to the Realtek ALC1220-VB audio codec.

No pricing or availability details for now, but Minisforum is expected to start a crowdfunding campaign for this model very soon.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
